Rudy Rebukes Dyson's 'White Supremacy' Jab: 'I Said the Same Thing' Obama Said


<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC&#39;s <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p>

<p>Rudy Giuliani fired back at Michael Eric Dyson on the 25 November 2014 edition of CNN&#39;s <em>New Day</em> for the MSNBC analyst&#39;s &quot;<a href="…; target="_blank">white supremacy</a>&quot; attack on the former New York City mayor. When anchor Alisyn Camerota raised Giuliani&#39;s supposedly &quot;controversial comments&quot; from Sunday&#39;s Meet the Press on NBC, the former Republican politician underlined that he had &quot;said the same thing the President of the United States said, and I was accused of being a racist.&quot;</p>

<p>Giuliani continued by paraphrasing from President Obama&#39;s Monday night speech, where the Democrat asserted that &quot;nobody needs good policing more than poor communities with higher crime rates.&quot; The one-time mayor added, &quot;When he [Obama] said it, he wasn&#39;t accused of being a racist. When I said it, my adversary [Dyson] said I was a racist.&quot;</p>
